Pros: 144Hz looks magical. 3D Vision (1 and 2) gaming works great as well. No pixels DOA.
Cons: A little pricey? Haven't tried the built-in speakers but I suspect they're nothing special.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: In general, this seems like a great entry-level ultrabook for the price. Startup is pretty fast and the machine is pretty quiet. Fast shipping as usual.
Cons: Does not have a touch screen--which is one of the most important features of new Windows 8 ultrabooks. Confusingly, there is another ultrabook with otherwise identical specs which I mistook for this one. Unfortunately for me, Newegg refuses to refund a single penny (I literally just opened the box and powered on the machine) despite the "30 day return policy" listed at the time of purchase.
I also found touchpad detection of Win8 gestures to be inconsistent; roughly 50% of the time the gestures don't work.
Other Thoughts: I was shocked and disappointed that Newegg refused to provide any refund for this confusingly advertised item which is essentially brand new. Since I did buy it at somewhat of a discount, I will attempt to recoup most of the cost by reselling it.
Despite being a loyal Newegg customer for nearly a decade, I feel I can no longer trust Newegg and certainly will never again buy PCs/laptops from them.
